Apple Maps: Still Clearly a Work in Progress

No doubt about it. Apple Maps still have some growing up to do. No more Google Maps, unless Google releases their own version on the App Store. They aren’t quite there yet. One cool feature of Apple maps is that they gather data from Yelp. This means that users who want to search for a restaurant or business can do so and will have the awesomeness of Yelp at their disposal. One problem.

Apple maps are still very obviously a work in progress. A look at the photos below shows you that Yelp data seems accurate, but Apple’s maps are all kinds of off. Below you will see two maps. The first is a Yelp map. The second is Apple. They are the same search and the same area. Just look at the placement of the pinpointed locations.
